Director of Strategy Development and Risk Management of PT Rekind Yanuar Budinorman in a statement in Jakarta, Tuesday (29/8/2017), said it has signed a cooperation agreement with PT Energi Negeri Mandiri in taking gas from the Cirebon-Semarang gas pipeline transmission line.

"Pipe Cirebon Semarang is part of the Trans Java gas pipeline integration project," he said.

He added that the Trans Java project consists of three main projects, namely West Java consisting of Cirebon-KHT line along the 84 km and Tegalgede-Muara Tawar 50 km.

Secondly, the northern part of Java is the Cirebon-Semarang line 235 km.

Finally, East Java consists of 271 km Semarang-Gresik line and East Java Gas Pipeline (EJGP) -Grati along 22.1 km.

The company, which is one of PT Pupuk Indonesia (Persero) subsidiaries, will build the project as an effort to succeed the national energy security program.

Acting President Director of PT Rekind Jakub Tarigan said Cirebon-Semarang pipeline is a liaison of gas infrastructure from West to East Java Island so that the energy hub can accelerate economic growth in Java.

"The Cirebon-Semarang pipeline distributes the gas evenly, especially in untouched Central Java, and supports gas flexibility as fuel for power plants and energy sources for industrial estates in West Java," he said.

It hopes that the project can provide added value for the government, industry, and society that will benefit from the gas channeled.

"This program is also a form of PT Rekayasa Industri's support to realize the development of gas infrastructure in order to succeed the National Energy Security program," he said.
